Melon wolf and shamrocks


IMG_6925Melonwolf


For breakfast this morning I ate one personal-sized watermelon.  I decided to wear my melon wolf shirt in honor of my choice of breakfast.  Before eating my melon I drank 32 ounces of water with 2 TBSP of lemon juice added.  I typically purchase http://www.santacruzorganic.com/products/100-juices/100-lemon-juice because it’s quicker and more economical than buying and squeezing lemons every day.

Mini watermelons are great.  They weigh on average about 4 lbs and a whole melon has about 400 calories.  One melon contains over half of the daily recommended amounts of both vitamins A and C as well as potassium, calcium and iron  They have 7 grams of protein and no fat or cholesterol.  They are good for the eyes and the immune system and the digestive tract. They are a sweet, satisfying, and refreshing start to my day and I eat them for breakfast at least twice per week.

I am also including a picture of the shamrock on my kitchen windowsill.  This little shamrock belonged to my great-grandmother and I acquired it in 1989.  When the flowers fall they can be planted and they will grow into more shamrocks. The leaves and flowers get bigger as they are given more room to grow, so a large potted shamrock will have much bigger leaves and flowers than my small shamrock, but will probably not be as loved.
